Transition to SBAC Assessments: Checklist for School Leaders

Transition to SBAC Assessments: Checklist for School Leaders | Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium | Scoop.it

Districts and schools in California will switch to a new statewide assessment system in the 2014-15 school year.

 

The new assessments will focus on the Common Core State Standards and be administered through a computerized testing system being developed by the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC).

 

Looking toward statewide implementation in 2014-15, districts should be evaluating their needs and establishing action plans to ensure a successful transition.
